The main stand seats 1500 and is divided into old and new sections, with the latter having plastic tip up seats. The front couple of rows are generally unused due to extremely poor viewing conditions.
Central Park is the last remaining ground in Scotland with three sides of open terracing. There is no segregation so feel free to stand wherever you wish. Although it is possible to view the game from behind the goals, very few people do because you are far removed from the field of play.
The catering is standard pie and bovril fare, but cheap nonetheless. Outlets are behind the main stand and at the top of the terracing. Service can be very slow which isn't a problem on the terracing where you can see the pitch but people in the queue behind the stand are often forced to miss the start of the second half. If you fancy a pie, get there early as they often run out.
Floodlighting is the usual third division standard i.e. adequate at best. Anoraks will note that there are 32 bulbs which never all seem to work at the same time. The terracing toilets are rather basic to say the least.
Official club merchandise is available in the portakabin immediately on your right as you enter the ground. The club programme is priced at £1 and has improved considerably over the last few seasons. There is a decent amount of reading material. You may also find the fanzine on sale outside the ground from time to time.
